“Being inseparably linked to the seasons, farms, fields and the sea is one of the most naturally gratifying emotions and fundamentally important philosophies of a chef.”
- Peter Tempelhoff, Executive Chef

We’re proud to introduce Origins, our new restaurant at The Marine.

At Origins we look back to look forward. We look back to The Khoisan, our First People, to run a restaurant that brings the joy of food, telling the story of our region’s culture, cuisine and ingredients on every plate.


Simply put, local and seasonal produce taste better. They’re part of the region’s fabric, they provide us with what the body needs season to season. We source foods that preserve green space and reduce environmental impact, as the land will not be ours forever. We source locally to support our community, because, just as the Khoisan understood, there is nothing more communal than a meal shared, a meal savoured together.


Small Plates pays tribute to the social act of sharing. Shoots, Stems & Leaves takes inspiration from the earth; local, seasonal produce delivered as complex, delicious salads. Our mains and sides are Hunted and Gathered; each ingredient reflecting our surroundings. Desserts with local flavour bring The Sweetness, and artisanal Cheeses of the Region round out the menu.

Our ‘Chef's Blackboard' will introduce at least 3 new daily dishes to reflect the season, and allow us to champion the exciting fresh produce we find.

Origins is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week  Contact our reception for bookings!
